Original WW II photos

Recommended Posts

 

These photos have been taken or given to a British soldier who served WWII in North Africa, and maybe other locations. They have been stored in the attic for maybe 70 odd years. Some photo's  have captions on the reverse side in nice fountain pen ink, so I have added below the photos.

That Torra Pass one is a gem.  If I have it correct:

American Vehicle

English Equipment

Italian Pill. ( shot ?)

I think that is a correct translation except that it is not American but a British Crusader !

As in the background of the photo above it.

Equipaggio Inglese is English crew

Not sure about pillola, but I wonder if it's colloquial for land mine as they can be pill shaped ...
